Well – the new year is here at long last! With it, it brings me to some little items of high importance…
I will be travelling to Brisbane in March to spend a week relaxing and see this amazing duo from Ireland in concert – this trip will complete the trifecta of capital cities on the east coast of Australia.
I still have a few little things to sort out for this trip – going to visit Sea World on the Gold Coast and do one of their amazing Animal Adventures…. I have not chosen which one as yet as they are all amazing! Then I have to book my flights – will be flying with Jetgo Australia again.
I was very fortunate to be able to photograph this beautiful Ned Kelly themed 1994 Western Star 5964 prime mover (tractor unit) while I was in Tamworth, NSW, Australia recently. The truck is owned by Andrew “Scuzzy” McSweeney of ScuzzTrans Container Transport in Brisbane, Queensland and is used daily on the docks at the Port of Brisbane shifting containers on and off the wharf.
Well – it has been a long time coming but this amazing musical, starring partially sighted NZ singing sensation, Bevan Gardiner, is on it’s way back to Australia. Will keep you updated with tour dates – I do know Thursday March 17, 2016 will be Dubbo’s turn to see this musical masterpiece.

An introduction to this amazing musical insight into the life of a man taken way too soon:
Tonight, I just want to share the positives from today! I am looking forward to sharing more of these as days go on!
1. I love the thought of being able to travel – travelling is a positive thing for me!
2. Having the ability to type how I feel is awesome – it’s one step on the road to recovery
3. The road to recovery will be slow – I plan on looking forward, not looking back
4. People may look at me weird – but I am me and the me I am will not change
5. I have learnt that music is a good relaxant – I listen to my iPod as soon as I arrive home from work to unwind from the fast-paced environment of work!
With that, I will close out this post with one of my all-time favourite Garth Brooks songs:
Tonight, I wish to share a newly found song from one of America’s most understated bands, Confederate Railroad. Confederate Railroad are a country rock/southern rock band from Chattanooga, TN, USA. Current members of CRR are Danny Shirley, Bobby Randall, Rusty Hendrix, Mark Du Fresne and Wayne Secrest.
